Zorn, John: Myth And Mythopoeia (Tzadik)

Label: Tzadik    
Released in: USA    

"This is a fabulous collection of five of Zorn's most exciting and dynamic recent compositions performed by a variety of new music superstars. "Pandora's Box" features the acclaimed Arditti Quartet and the brilliant soprano Sarah Sun in one of Zorn's most colorful and dramatic compositions. "Babel" is a hard driving fantasia on one note for solo cello and is performed here by the incredible cellist Jeff Zeigler. "Hexentarot" and "Zeitgehoft" are two complex fingerbusters performed by Zorn regulars Otto, Campbell and Gosling, and rounding out the CD is the stunning instrumental "Requiem Missa Sine Voces", performed by the renown Talea Ensemble. A kaleidoscope of modern chamber music by Downtown alchemist John Zorn."-Tzadik
